I got to revisit my old university stomping ground last week when I manned the Adept Scientific/Quanser stand at the 2014 UKACC Conference on Control at the University of Loughborough. It was a great opportunity to meet up with old lecturers, visit old haunts and see how things have advanced on campus, while making brand new connections with customers and contacts in the world of system control.
Visitors and exhibitors alike were keen to catch a glimpse of the latest control technology, and we put on a great show for them with our range of Quanser systems set up and running on our stand. These included the ultra-effective QUBE device, impressive Active Suspension System and the Ball and Beam module for the Rotary Servo Base Unit.
I also sat in on National Instruments’ instructional free workshop session during which PHD students got to try their hand at building a control system using Quanser’s Inverted Rotary Pendulum and NI’s CompactRIO controller.
Looking forward to UKACC 2016 which will be held at the Queen’s University, Belfast.
